Upper Peninsula of Michigan / Indian Lake State Park

We left Mackinaw City a day earlier than planned. It was beautiful and we loved Mackinac Island but it was wet and cold and we got tired of the midges swarming around us everywhere we went. So off we went to the "UP" on our way to Sheboygan Wisconsin to see Steve, Jenny, and the boys.
We didn't have a detailed plan other than to drive a few hours and stop at a state park. Wow, did we ever luck out. Indian lake State Park is just outside of Manistique Michigan. Ministique is on Lake Superior. Indian Lake is about 5 miles inland from Lake Superior. The campground had dozens of available sites so we picked one right on the lake. We did a 3-4 mile hike along the lake and the surrounding forest.

One of the few state park campgrounds I've seen with specifically designated handicap campsites.

Disappointed! A few minutes before this shot it looked like we would have a glorious sunset.
There was no wind and the lake was like glass. The sun was in clear view.
Then as it got further down  on the horizon several clouds formed that blocked any further view of the sunset.
To make matters worse several motor boats came racing back to the marina, trying to avoid darkness, and the wakes of these boats ruined the perfect glass surface. Oh, well, sigh, it was still great being here.
